July 2014 - Radiance of the Seas to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
I enjoyed our cruisetour. My wife and I traveled with our two boys ages 10 and 12. Alaska was beatiful and so was the weather. We booked a shore excursion through Royal Caribean in Keitchan. We went zip lining and it was awesome. Great staff and a lot of fun. The waiters and room attendants on the ship were great! I could have not asked for better service. I was a little disappointed with the land section of our cruietour. We were not given our itenerary until we dimembarked the ship therefore we could not book any excursions before we left. I felt rushed at many of the stops. We were not allowed to check into the hotel in Aleska until 4:00 and we had to leave at 10:00 the next morning. There was a lot to explore there and we simply were not allowed the time to do it. I felt like the tour guide and bus driver just killed time to get us to each new time for check in. I would have much rathered getting to a town early, been allowed to explore and checked into our rooms later. There was plenty to do at each stop. I would rather wonder around a town or hike trails that sit on a bus all day. I loved all the different cities that we got to see and we did a lot of fun things.
